Question about Hoover HDC7FM Dryer
This dryer operates for 3 seconds then cuts out. It also causes the houses socket fuse to trigger. Even just having it plugged in and not operating will cause the house fuse to trigger.
Open the dryer door (right
after the breaker trips) and check for a burned smell. If it smells in
the dryer, you probably have a direct short in the dryer wiring. Check for a burn smell at the wall socket. There may be a short in the socket itself, but not likely unless a mouse is lying across the contacts in the wall.
If everything checks ok replace the circuit breaker if this is an older home. Circuit breakers weaken after years of use. A 30 amp circuit breaker will trip at a much lower amperage after a period of years especially if it has tripped often.
